Mallorca Bike Tour

Spain's Mediterranean Isle of Mallorca

  • Absorb endless vistas of the turquoise Mediterranean Sea from the rocky valleys of the Tramuntana Mountains
  • Pedal the narrow and curvaceous peninsula road to breathtaking Cap de Formentor, at the island’s tip
  • Savor delectable seafood and other local specialties during a meal at a former fortress on the Bay of Palma
  • Behold secluded mountain towns and stone terraces, lush and teeming with wild lavender and citrus groves

You'll feel Mallorca's irresistible allure from the moment you ease your bike onto the road. Maybe it's the steep peaks and gorges of the Serra de Tramuntana. Or the nearly deserted back roads, where vigorous climbs and curlicue descents thrill cyclists of all persuasions. Or the sea fringed by secret pebble beaches. Come fall in love with it all.

Mallorca Biking Map

Itinerary

Day 1 Cycle through the countryside, passing picturesque windmills | Feeling energetic? Take on the area’s highest mountain, crowned by a famous pilgrimage spot | Relish fresh seafood on the Bay of Palma | Enjoy Mediterranean views from our hotel, a stunning 19-century fortress.

Days 2-3 Behold the dramatic Serra de Tramuntana mountain range—cycling paradise found! | Ascend the ultra-curvy Orient-Bunyola route through some of Mallorca’s most breathtaking scenery | Wind through pine forests near the monastery that once hosted Frédéric Chopin and George Sand | Overnight in enchanting Valldemossa, once a Moorish hamlet.

Day 4 Explore the island’s western reaches on a coastal ride | Stroll through the perched village of Deiá, source of inspiration for the islands’ artists | Relax in the cozy main square of Fornalutx before conquering Mallorca’s highest mountain pass | If you dare, brave the road to Sa Calobra, a thrilling roller coaster of hairpin turns plunging 3,000 feet to the sea.

Days 5-6 Bike the winding road to Cap de Formentor, a bluff at the northernmost end of the island  |  Pedal along the southern side of the Serra de Tramuntana range into a fertile region dotted with vineyards and olive and walnut trees.

Great biking and the hotels were beautiful. Lots of opportunities to explore the island and interact w locals.

Fabulous, and we will definitely do more Backroads trips! I highly recommend Backroads for their extensive planning and preparation, which pay off with smooth trips. And for their ability to improvise through challenges like weather. Backroads guides were totally focused on making sure we had an epic experience.

Cycling Heaven and European Island Luxury

Comments about Mallorca Bike Tour:

I felt like I was in a dream on this trip - the best cycling dream that you could imagine. Perfect roads, amazing views, great food and incredible hotels. Mallorca takes the best of island life, paired with European sophistication and offers some of the most beautiful mountains, vineyards and coastline you've ever seen. Aside from the amazing riding, the charming villages and friendly locals made the entire experience a trip of a lifetime. The trip leaders ensured that every need was met, and every detail was explained without feeling pushed into or out of any aspect of the journey. Mallorca is up there with some of the best riding I've ever done - anywhere in the world. Thank you Backroads!!!!

Comments about Mallorca Bike Tour:

Again, amazing exprience. Love the guitar music concert. what a treat. The afternoon at the beach great, and the wine tasting picnic was some of our favorite food. There were quite a few busy roads, but not sure that could be avoided. Best biking views I have ever seen. Planning our next trip already

A Cyclists Mecca! Sa Colobra is Must Do list!

By 

from Berkeley

Comments about Mallorca Bike Tour:

I don't know why it took Americans so long to figure this out, but Mallorca is a cyclists (and probably a hikers) DREAM. So glad Backroads decided to do a trip there. The world-class riding combined with the epicurean delights of the local cuisine, the fine wine (a surprise!), and the lovely hotel properties made this one of our favorite Backroads trips. I'm sure you could do some of the island on your own - but why would you? This is one of the tightest, most ideal itineraries we've done. They somehow pick the best rides, when there is the least traffic, and eliminate any of the infamous "tourist trap" part of the island. Just terrific.

Comments about Mallorca Bike Tour:

The Mallorca Bike trip was my favorite Backroads trip so far. Between the stunning landscape, warm climate, perfect roads, incredible cycling, fabulous hotels, delicious food, friendly people and incredible leaders, this trip cannot be topped. Six days of stunning riding, making new friends, indulging in local cuisine and dipping in the sea was not enough. I want to go back!

Why Travel with Backroads in Mallorca

Great Bikes Included (or Upgrade)

Choose a Backroads Custom Titanium or Custom Electric Assist bike—both are included in your trip price. Maybe a Specialized carbon-fiber pro model is more your speed or go for double fun on a tandem. Our fleet is the best in active travel, so you don't have to roll the dice on this vital trip component. Learn why our titanium bikes are ideal for most riders. See the bike options for this trip.

Navigate Your Way in Mallorca

Your ride comes equipped with a Garmin Edge Explore 1000, the best bike-touring GPS device on the market. This is a Backroads exclusive, and it's included with your bike in Mallorca. If you prefer to bring your own device, we also have downloadable GPS files and of course, our good old paper directions are always available. Read more on why our navigation options are the best.

Only the Best Hotels

On this trip featuring Premiere Hotels, you can count on the best lodgings Mallorca has to offer. In fact, the hotels we've chosen in this region have higher retail room rates than those offered by any other active travel company—even when their trips cost more.

A Second Van When You Need It

Backroads is the only active travel company providing two support vans in Mallorca—because we know it's essential to ensure a truly great travel experience. It doubles our ability to be there when you need us to offer hydration, lighten your load or give you a lift if it's time to take a break. Read more on why two vans make all the difference.

More Leaders to Support You

On our Mallorca trips we have an extra leader supporting you along the road—for a total of three, compared to the industry standard two. So we can be in more places at once, giving personal attention to guests traveling at their own pace. Here's more on our Trip Leaders.

Your Trip Will Run. Period.

Under our Book with Confidence policy, your Backroads trip will run even for one or two people (or a family of three or four), subject to a nominal extra fee. Or transfer to another trip, and we'll give you a credit. It's all part of our trademark commitment to treating guests with integrity, transparency and total accountability. Read all the details.

A Variety of Routes Each Day

In Mallorca you head off each morning after choosing among several expertly designed routes—all with detailed directions, mileage and shuttle options. Unlike trips with one fixed daily route (or worse, one guide that everyone's obliged to follow), you're free to enjoy the best of the region at your pace, stopping wherever you want to explore further.

We Speak the Language

If we told you many companies' leaders can't actually speak the language where they lead trips, you'd say incroyable... ridicolo... không the tha thú. At Backroads, fluency in the local language is a given. Find out more on the best leader recruitment, training and development in the business. (And by the way, that was "unforgivable" in Vietnamese.)
